Inquiry-based learning (IBL) or Inquiry-based teaching (IBT) are based on Inquiry strategies that actively involve students in exploring the learning content, issues, and questions that arise on concepts and curricular objectives of the educational program. Activities and tasks in IBL classes can be designed on students' individual active work or group work to solve the problems raised, which may also include tasks in and outside the auditorium. This learning development strategy is mostly focused on students' self-action. Their confidence in dealing with the tasks depends on the pupil's level and their adjustment with the developmental skills of the Inquiry process. IBL method has been very effective in the students' cognitive formation. In addition to high-level student motivation, one of the main reasons why IBL is applied nowadays is because it affects the active involvement of students in the learning process. Facing students with such a challenging issue allows them to reflect on their acquisition process, develops their imagination, brings new experiences, activates logical thinking and critical thinking in solving the problems posed. This paper aims to focus on the importance of IBL in students' cognitive formation through investigations in our teaching subjects. In this process, students share opinions with their peers, discuss various papers and enhance their knowledge from various sources. IBL has proven high effectiveness in the formation and mental education of students.
